Wildlife Over Waste

Every day people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers and other plastic “stuff.” Among the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam (the stuff most of us call Styrofoam), which never fully degrades. Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries. That’s why we’re calling on state leaders to ban take-out foam cups and containers.

Tropical Forest Protection

To save endangered species, we must protect the world’s tropical forests. Doing so will also help stabilize our climate. We’re doing our part by urging companies to commit to stop cutting down these great forests—a commitment known as zero-deforestation. Many of the companies that harvest and use palm oil have already agreed to make this commitment. Now we’re focusing on the beef and soybean supply chain.

Together, we make a difference

At Environment America and each of our 29 state groups, our staff work together for clean air, clean water, clean energy, wildlife, open spaces and a livable climate. Our members put grassroots support behind our research and advocacy. We stand up for the environment. Your support makes it possible. 

The True Value of Solar

The Clean Water Network

The people who take action to clean up and protect our rivers, lakes and streams need all the help they can get. Since 2014, our Clean Water Network has connected these local heroes with each other, uniting over 250 local and regional watershed groups around the country so they can be more effective champions for clean water.
